Mental Telepathy In Love Relationships
Nowhere is telepathic evidence better proven than in a close love relationship. Both personally and as a counselor I've found this to be a mixed blessing. For example, how often during a disagreement one of us has said, "You say _____, but I know that what you really mean is _____". We are convinced that we know the inner mind and heart of our loved one.
I'm not disputing that we may indeed know the true intentions of what our loved one is thinking. There are a couple of ways that this can lead us down the wrong path however.
It can happen that we are using mental telepathy reading our loved one's subconscious or unconscious thoughts. This happens on an uncanny number of occasions. Although the concept may "ring a bell" for our partner when we verbalize it, there may be plenty of room for denial on their part. This is quite natural and legitimate, since, until it is true for the person themselves, it simply isn't true. This can be a hard lesson for the more aware psychic person, as they may be trying very hard to practice validation of their perceptions. One must remember though, that validation of one's ego is not the apparent purpose of a spiritual gift. Instead, we have more often seen that the purpose is to benefit others. Rarely, is it workable or beneficial to override someone's inner reality by asserting the correctness of our own. We certainly may suggest that our alternate perception be considered, but to assert that this is so is a type of violence on another's reality.
As emotional beings we cannot help but to have our perceptions filtered through what we are feeling. This doesn't mean that our perceptions are invalid, but it may indicate that we can misinterpret what we are perceiving. One neglects this possibility at their own peril in interpersonal relationships. Particularly if we are in the grip of a "negative" emotion, i.e., anger, fear, grief or apathy, we are unlikely to have a truly accurate interpretation of any impressions we pick up from another. This is because these self-destructive emotions cloud thought, and telepathy is a function of mind.
What then, is the advantage of mental telepathy in relationship? This is our reminder that we are truly One in Spirit. As spiritual beings, we are inescapably connected to one another. This is part of the omnipotence of Spirit. If It is everywhere, then we must, necessarily be a part of It, and therefore, of each other.
As we are able to accept this truth, to allow ourselves to hear, see and otherwise be aware of the unseen connections between each of us, these perceptions sharpen. Particularly as we permit ourselves to know that each connection is that of love, the accuracy of our perceptions is enhanced.
It has been said that both the optimist and the pessimist are right at least 50% of the time. In my dealings with dozens of psychics and channels, I have seen that this is not necessarily so when it comes to the higher perceptions. It seems that as we elevate ourselves to a more spiritual awareness, pessimistic thinking tends to be riddled with inaccuracies. Optimism however, will far more often tend to be highly accurate, and will hold up to deeper scrutiny.
Therefore, when we are believing in our loved one, having faith in their love and goodness, our spiritual perceptions of them will likely be correct. Even if we are perceiving a "wrongness" of some sort, our faith and love will often present a solution at the same time that we become aware of the problem. This is one of those synchronistic things that we encounter so often on the spiritual path.
As my clairvoyant consultant friend said, using your mental telepathy consciously can develop over time. Love is what makes it safe to open ourselves to be heard on the inner levels and to reach out to another to listen to what is in their hearts.
